Easy Game Day Recipes- 5 Ingredients or Less

Sharing is caring!

Easy Game Day Recipes are those that allow you to really enjoy the day without having to prepare complicated menu items. These recipes are not only easy, but nearly all also have 5 ingredients or less so you can quickly put these together before the big game in a couple of weeks. Note that salt and pepper did not count as an ingredient.

Game day food needs to be simple because when you are hosting a gathering, you want the time (and energy) to be present with your guests and maybe even watch the game. Why not simplify your game day party with tasty appetizers that don’t require a long list of ingredients?

Hello Friends! If you are like me, you are thinking about what to make or take to the Big football game next weekend. A few of my friends have helped me gather some truly simple game day recipes with 5 ingredients or less. 

These recipes are all winners in my book. Tasty treats to offer your guests, or take to a game party that is not time-consuming. The great thing is that many of these recipes only look complicated and no one has to know just how simple these are.

I rounded up some easy and quick game day recipes from some of my blogger friends for you today. From dips to deviled eggs, you will find something for everyone here.

Check out all these great treats for your next game or gathering. These also make great treats for a football tailgate or any time of TV viewing party.

I'm missing out on Super Bowl parties this year because I'm in Florida with my parents and my kiddos. But I'm soooo going to pin this for when there's a pot luck or game event. I'm always struggling on what to serve or bring...
